Self Employed Income Support Scheme (SEIS) update:
The SEIS HMRC gateway is now open. In order to make a SEIS claim you must have a Government Gateway ID and password. If you do not create a HMRC gateway account, you will not be able to make a claim.
When you click on the link it will ask for your UTR and then National Insurance number (this information can be obtained from looking at past tax returns which will be on an email, or you can log into https://www.accountancymanager.co.uk/ to view previously signed tax returns).
Once that is put in, the online tool should advise whether or not HMRC think you are eligible for the scheme. If you are, HMRC will ask you to add your contact details as they will use this to tell you when to claim and what you need to do beforehand. When you click through at that point, the online tool asks for your Gateway ID and password.
If you haven’t got this, then via the online tool you can request a Gateway ID. Failure to have a Gateway ID will delay the ability for you to make a claim for being self-employed.
